Just my 2 cents. To me they are free to release and charge what ever they want whenever they want, it is their product, art and property. We are free to buy or not buy, I like to pick and choose what I buy from what I have downloaded here. I would love to see them release their catalog like the Black Crowes, Gov Mule, moe. and many other bands do as livedownloads either with that site or they can create their own like itunes did with the Crowes last San Fran run. That way anyone can pick and choose whatever they want to buy. I will not buy the E72 box set because to me that is a major purchase and I will not have the time to listen to all of it properly and eventually I would feel like I wasted my money. Furthur has released all their SBD's for purchase and I would love the dead to do the same. I just don't see why people get so upset on this forum at times because they want to make some cash for their family for college, cars or whatever, it is not my business and I particularly don't care how much money they make or think they need. I will cherrypick what I buy from them. just my 2 cents! Have a great weekend all, from snowy ass Boston!

Yeah, for what it's worth, I'd prefer that to a you've-got-to-buy-it-all boutique release a la the E 72 box set. It's their right to do the boutique release, of course (and apparently I was wrong about it being a dumb idea, LOL). Just personal preference. (And better than cut-up shows, too.)
